The Welsh Language Sabbatical Scheme is a programme of language training courses designed for teachers, lecturers, and classroom assistants, aimed at increasing the number of practitioners that are able to teach through the medium of Welsh or bilingually.

 

Through funding from the Welsh Government, Rhagoriaith is responsible for running Welsh Language Sabbatical Scheme courses in the South West and Mid Wales regions, as well as moderating all courses that run throughout Wales.

 

Courses are available at Entry, Foundation and Higher levels, and all are free of charge – the Welsh Government funds all supply cover, travel and accommodation.
